Hopping on this thread since I feel pretty clueless about a lot of the fertility treatment options that I have all the sudden found myself in the middle of. I was tracking several cycles off birth control prior to TTC and realized I have a significant luteal phase defect, so I proactively went and had an evaluation this time around since I never pursued an evaluation with my ex-husband after 3 miscarriages… because, well, he decided he didn’t want to be married to me any longer, so TTC wasn’t in the works any longer. I am so blessed to have found an incredible guy to marry and we both want lots of babies! 🙂
Your age/partner’s age: I turn 30 this weekend, my husband is 27
Baby #: 2nd for me, first for Darling Husband. I have one 5 year old son and have had 3 miscarriages.
Cycles TTC: only the 3rd actively trying with new Darling Husband
Current CD/DPO: CD14
Usual Cycle Length: 28 days
Ovulation or procedure date (and what kind): just had hCG trigger injection today…so hopefully ovulate in 2-3 days, start vaginal progesterone on Friday!
POAS/beta day: July 8th earliest
Known fertility issues: multiple miscarriages, luteal phase defect (my natural luteal phase is usually 8 days with a ton of spotting for several days prior). I also have elevated anti-mullerian hormone, but no other typical features of PCOS
BFP plan (BD timing, supplements, charting, etc.): we BD’d this weekend, I was told by my provider to skip today and BD tomorrow and next day. We use preseed lubricant and I chart BBT. I start vaginal progesterone to try and support my defective luteal phase Friday.
Trying anything new this month? hCG trigger with luteal phase progesterone
Link to your chart, if charting: on my phone, not able to link, boo!
For fun- What’s your favourite meal to cook for a dinner party? my Darling Husband usually cooks, he makes fantastic steaks!
Thanks for these threads and would love all the info about fertility treatments and work-ups, I did hCG trigger this cycle, but next cycle if this isn’t successful is likely going to also involve clomid. We likely wouldn’t pursue IUI or IVF until we were at a year plus without success, but it makes me feel better that I am at least actively working on my luteal phase defect now. If I never have to go through another miscarriage again, it would be a win.
